  About Me
 
Hi. My name is Alexa, and I am 23 years old with a Bachelor's degree in Psychology from Stony Brook University. As part of my preparation at Stony Brook University, I have taken numerous courses on Child Development and additionally have 10 years of hands-on experience with children and childcare.
I am an energetic, reliable, responsible, considerate and creative young lady with ten years of experience being a nanny, housekeeper and guardian. I have been taking care of children of all ages my whole life, including my younger brother, who is now 16 years old, since he was born. I have also had the experience of being a guardian for two families each with two children (infant to school age) for five years during summer vacations, weekends and after school hours. Duties include cooking, taking care of pets, cleaning the house, babysitting, and taking the children to and from practice, games, school and friends' houses. Additionally, I have been a housekeeper for these families and have not only cleaned their houses, but organized drawers, closets, pantries etc. as well as 'watched' their houses and pets while they go on vacation, helped host parties and ran errands.
I am very intelligent and a fun lady with an outgoing personality and a positive attitude. I love to work out, read, write, do arts&crafts and all outdoor activities like swimming, hiking, fishing, or camping. I would make a great contribution to your child/children with my nurturing, attentive and compassionate nature. I hope to hear from you soon.

I worked for this family for a number of years a babysitter and housekeeper. I got this reference off of indeed a number of years ago and they have become my second family! The reason for leaving was I graduated college and wanted to get the urban experience of being in the city! I just recently moved to Brooklyn in February and am looking for long term nanny work, please consider me!!!!

I was a nanny for this family for four years during the summers in Massachusetts which was an incredible experience and opportunity. I also found this family on indeed.com and for similar reasons as the last reference, I am leaving permanently to start a new life in the city! Please consider me!
